Omar Barghouti, leader and spokesman for the international campaign for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions ("BDS"), spoke at the recent Tree of Life Conference 11-1-2014 in Cambridge, MA.

How is the BDS campaign doing? Barghouti recounts some impressive results, particularly with governments of various countries. For example, Veolia has recent lost some billion-dollar contracts, including one in Massachusetts. Veolia serves as "manager" of waste processing for Israeli settlements, depositing its output guess where. We need to take heart from BDS successes, and join the effort if we haven't already.

Listen hard, the recording quality is poor despite our attempts to bolster its clarity. We hope to find a better recording, and if so, we'll post it here.

Our host continues with his own report on BDS efforts against Israel-tainted companies doing business in Massachusetts.

For those seeking information on what retail products to boycott, go to, but note that the list is incomplete. Also note the following about hummus: As reports, Sabra hummus (along with Tribe) is a target of BDS. However, a small Lebanese company in Norwood, Massachusetts makes its own excellent hummus, which carries a green Sabra label. Our advice: green label Sabra is good; boycott Sabra with the red label!
